These are just a few of the Celtic crosses we have sold over the years, in all shapes, sizes and colours - some as stand-alones with bases on the bottom and some being very colourful wall hangings. If I had to guess, I'd say that we've made nearly a hundred or so of these crosses.
Some of them were just painted with no additional embellishments, while on others, like many of the ones in the first photo, I added and glued some crushed, dried leaves and knobbly tree bark from the old trees in our back garden that I felt would give them a more ancient look and more tactile, too. I remember someone who bought one of the tree bark textured ones and said, with a smile, 'Very hobbit-y.' I remember smiling when she said that, too.
The only one we still have is that huge one in the center in the photo above which I've lately been considering giving to a local church.
As we've had a lot of requests recently from people who've previously bought these at crafts fairs from me over the years, I'm now thinking about doing more of them once again. They're a bit trickier than the plaques, though, as it means getting the jigsaw out and cutting them to the correct shape and proportions. Having said that, however, they're all a joy to create.
So...what do you think? Shall we make some more Celtic crosses?
